Peopleís Choice Award Winner at Montrealís Avenue Artís Brush off Competition 2010
Since her childhood, Susan has always been creative. She trained as a Chef where she found that the art is found as much on the palate as in the eye. Her children gave her the opportunity to try many different creative projects, although the most fun would be in her garden amongst the flowers.
Susan attended watercolor classes with Shernya Vininsky-Krause, Rigaud QC where she was taught the principals of this difficult medium, inspiring her to paint daily, in particular her beloved florals.
Susan is a huge fan of Georgia OíKeeffe, which led her to paint in a much larger macro style. This gave Susan the opportunity to push her artistic boundaries into taking up acrylics. She attended classes with Sonia Haberstich, Hudson, QC and more recently with Momoko Allard at the Montreal Visual Arts Center, both of whom have helped Susan develop her own style in this medium.
As an artist Susan is constantly learning and growing, she often says she finds an inner peace when painting and feels fully contented with a paintbrush in her hand.
